SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – Hispanic Business magazine has partnered with nonprofit organization Dress for Success for a blouse and handbag drive at the Hispanic Business Woman of the Year event on April 26th at Caesars Palace Las Vegas.
Attendees of the fifth annual Woman of the Year event, which celebrates the accomplishments of successful U.S. Hispanic women, are asked to bring new or gently used blouses and business bags. Donations at the 2007 WOY will go directly to the Los Angeles chapter of Dress for Success, an international nonprofit organization providing interview suits and career development services to disadvantaged women making the transition into the workforce.
"When I discovered Dress for Success, I immediately thought that the women attending Woman of the Year would be a great resource to tap," said Hispanic Business Events Manager Julie Caligiuri. "It's a match made in heaven."
Dress For Success Worldwide CEO Joi Gordon agrees. "By donating blouses and bags, these successful ladies enable another woman to attend a job interview with confidence and take the first step towards economic independence. We are delighted that Hispanic Business has involved Dress for Success in the WOY," she said.
Donated blouses and business bags can be dropped off at the Dress for Success collection site, near the registration table for the Woman of the Year daytime symposium at Caesars Palace. All donations collected at the 2007 WOY will be shipped from Las Vegas to the Los Angeles chapter of Dress for Success courtesy of Verizon.
